2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo LS 2dr Coupe (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Have owned this car for two years.2nd owner. Had to replace rotors and right front hub assembly, may have to do left also. Have to buy whole assembly to replace which is more expensive. Had to replace catalytic converter, but was still under 80000 miles warranty. Love car, flashy, would have probably bought the SS for more power but is still one nice vehicle. I have not had some of the problems others have reported( knock on wood), but we do drive it conservatively. I would recommend this vehicle to others.

2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I got an '01 Monte Carlo and have the best time driving it! Love the room and power. Much has improved since the 90's that I had. I would keep buying this car as long as it keeps on giving me good service. And for those other guys who say that their Monte Carlo is junk then they must be doing something wrong! Because funny thing i have naver had any trouble with my cars like that.


Best Features

I love this car power and the body. I get lots of good coments about the car how great it looks and how i got it set up with chrome wheels and chrome exhuast tips. Dark tint. and red ss on the sides and back. It's the hottest Monte SS in town! Hands down


Worst Features

Put a better sound system in it!

This car gets looks everywhere I go. Very big trunk. Nice stereo. Power everything. Lots of car for the money.


Best Features

The comfort and room for 5 adults is very nice.


Worst Features

Needs more power. The doors are big and can be a pain in tight parking lots.

2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

It's a good daily driver that still turns heads almost like when it was new. I only drive about 11k mi. per year, but take some 7+ hour road trips. It's a big comfy car that looks sporty and gets great gas mileage. Seems very stable at high speeds. I got an extended warranty still in effect which has paid off. Stuff that failed: hazard flashers in 1st year; 3 year - main computer died as did the battery; 5-year - catalytic converter failed and burned up the intake manifold and seals, alternator went out, in the shop several times for the intermediate steering shaft (fixed now?), and a front wheel bearing went out. Some other weird computer quirks with interior lights and auto locks.


Best Features

Traction control, large interior space, engine power with great gas mileage, exterior styling with 2-tone sport package, sunroof, nice stereo


Worst Features

Needs improved interior styling

Review

I purchased my SS new. Transmission going now at 85k. Headliner fell behind sunroof, dealer never could fix from day one. Electrical under seat poor design. Moving seat has pulled wires. Pulled seat heater, seatbelt light flashing. Electrical is poor. Signals quit working and can hear buzzer at times. Good driving machine though and still get compliments on the car at almost 7 years old.


Best Features

Looks. So many compliments on the style, even now.


Worst Features

Improve design of electrical under the seats. Moving the seat breaks wiring. Use better interior products, cheap for such a good car
